When removing acrylic nails, the first thing you have to keep in mind is the preparation. Remember that you have to be extra careful when removing acrylic nails. Hence, you must prepare your working area as well as the materials before starting the removal of the acrylic nails. Find a place where you can be comfortable. Any flat surface will do as long as you are comfortable. Make sure to cover your working area. Afterwards, prepare the materials you will use to remove the acrylic nails. Place it in a way that all the materials are in front of you.
The next thing you need to do when removing acrylic nails is to trim the acrylic nails as short as possible. This will make the process of removal much easier. Afterwards, put the nail polish remover onto a glass bowl. Before placing your fingernails onto the bowl, make sure to put some petroleum jelly to the surrounding skin of your nails. Removing acrylic nails will be easier this way. This can also prevent the drying of the skin while you soak your fingers in the bowl. Just make sure that you don't get any petroleum on the acrylic nails.
The next step of removing acrylic nails is to soak your acrylic nails in the bowl and wait for 15-20 minutes. Afterwards, gently remove the acrylic nails. During the process of removing acrylic nails, make sure not to force the nails if you find them difficult to remove. Try to re-soak the nails again, instead. After all the artificial nails are removed, the final step is to put moisturizing cream on your hands. This will ensure that your hands are still moisturized after soaking it in the acetone.
